When the history on the rise of UFC will be written, Diego Sanchez will be one of the first names that should be there in the mention. The former UFC lightweight and welterweight and the former lightweight title challenger and the first-ever winner of The Ultimate Fighter franchise had some of the toughest battles outside the Octagon, but even tougher outside of it.
After a rather tragic departure from the UFC as well as separation from his coach Joshua Fabia, Sanchez was rather living a humbling, blissful family time, until he was tested positive for Covid earlier this month. Despite being better in the middle of this journey, it’s been informed by Sanchez via his Twitter now the condition is even much worse.
